What Counts as a Dental Emergency?

A dental emergency is any condition, whether chronic or acute, that causes serious damage to the teeth and gums. This can be due to injuries like a hard hit during a contact sport or an accidental fall. It can also be caused by a chronic issue like gingivitis or severe tooth decay.

Common dental injuries from contact sports and rough activities include:

• Loose teeth
• Broken teeth
• Cracked/chipped teeth
• Knocked out (avulsed) teeth
• Impacted teeth

Any of these can require emergency dentistry. Cracked and chipped teeth may expose their nerve pulp to the air, increasing the risk of infection, and causing serious pain.

To minimize pain and maximize the chance of saving your tooth, it’s best to visit an emergency dentist within 12 hours of your injury.

Dental emergencies can include:

• Severe, chronic toothache
• Loose teeth due to periodontal disease
• Gum or tooth infection
• Root canals

Although they’re not caused by an injury, these conditions are also very serious, and will require emergency dental care. Failing to get appropriate treatment could lead to infection, severe pain, and irreversible oral damage.

A general rule is that any oral condition causing severe pain or bleeding counts as a dental emergency. If you are experiencing any of the above conditions, or have other concerns, contact Golden Gate Dental today.
